I wish more genetics textbooks were written in this way, acknowledging that there are a lot of strange problems in genetics and not just history and vocabulary. Had I bought it at the beginning of the semester instead of towards the end it might have improved my grade a little. One person found this helpful.

Some problems were helpful. Spent more time in office hours for help Working with the professor was better. However, the professor provided a large amount of practice problems. Received a B in the class due to the professor, not this book. Some typos and paper is thin This book helped me through a truly horrible semester of genetics. I really like this book, it has a lot of great practice problems to help you prepare for exams and to make sure you understand the material.

This is useful for anyone who wants assistance in a college fundamental genetics course. I liked it and makes much more sense than my class Advanced Genetics textbook, though I had to drop the class because I could not keep up with the statistics. I wish I had at the beginning the semester. Made a B in the class. Very good summery of the material covered in my level university course.

I would ask for some more difficult problems to work through though. See all 26 reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published 5 months ago. Published 1 year ago.
